in that environment it was a constant topic of conversation and then of course in the 60's as my grandfather became interested in his own fbi file because he too was followed and used the freedom of information act to get a hold of his file and the was of great interest because he was completely purged and documents were missing. i became fascinated in the whole period and that did lead me to become interested in the topic. >> in your talk about sabotage fought are you talking like they have factories or something? >> de savage tauscher area what have related to the shipping. one of the early mandates was to come and protect the british cargos and shipping so they did petrel the ports and some of the early complaints about the irregulars is that stevenson's bouygues or beating up nazis on the of dock with no due process. that would have been the area of sabotage. the germans. the original mandate was to come in and identify the nazi sympathizers and german organizations in this country. they vastly overstaffed that and did all kinds of spying on our politicians and meddling in our own political pro
diligence, that we are minimizing what the overall impact would be on our environment, on our bottom line, and what it means for the city to be putting this on. ~ good we have to answer a lot of questions. and i think the public process we've had about putting on the event here in this committee, on other committees of the board of supervisors, and other agencies around the bay that permit a lot of the efforts of the project need to be covered and need to be addressed. and that's where -- the public process is important to show we're doing our due diligence and creating in a transparent way for the city. i actually have heard the reports from our departments, office of economic workforce development, olse, office of labor standards enforcement, that we actually have not been living up to our commitments for the america's cup, especially around small business inclusion, especially around prevailing wage and local hire. i think that is something that is significant. we come here, we have discussions in our committees. we are told that certain things are going to happen and then when it come
because we have a different value set that cares about the commitment to the environment. almost every company that has been started by a millennials has some kind of social backside to it, whether it's a commitment from the beginning to being green or whether it's actually baked into the mission of the company. this is a generation that is not buying homes. they are not getting married. they are the lowest car ownership in a long time. these are like the basic fundamental concepts of our economy. no one ever thought about the value to buy a home. basing our economy on homeownership and marriage and all these things. i am not an economist so i don't know how that is actually going to transform the economy but it's something that economy should be paying a lot more attention to. when we talk about young people not having a bright future in older people are incredibly pessimistic about this generation's future. it's because the economic futures based on these things like homeownership in marriage. if all of these things are delayed the picture looks different. >> host: what kind of effec
and an environment that celebrates your coming to our state and joining us. my focus for a long time has been, and i think... all of us, should be on economic growth. and ensuring the economic growth and our country return to historic levels and remains strong going forward. the question i would like to pose to both mr. horton and mr. parker focuses on the impact of this merger on growth, both from the perspective of the great many employees of both companies and from the perspective of consumers. by askingke to start the american ordered in texas which has a great many jobs that we are grateful for but american has challenging financial circumstances in recent years. i would like to get your views both on the negative impact that would flow to american disapproval -- this murder were not approved. it is widely expected to be approved by would like your repercussions if it were not and on the flip side, the positive benefits to the many thousands of men and women who worked at american right now if this merger is approved. >> thank you, senator. i would also like to welcome doug parker to the great
to tell people we're going to cut the subsidies, but in this post arab spring environment, they are inclined to take things some people. and the country is $500 billion in foreign reserves, so it's hardly broke, but there are saudis financial institutions who estimate that the government spending will exceed government revenues by 2014. goes after the arab spring when king abdullah came home from back surgery, he passed out $130 billion to the society on top of a $180 billion annual budget. so more money for students stipends, more money to the religious establishment, more money to everyone, and created a minimum-wage for the first time for saudis. obviously, not for foreigners. and lastly, is the royal family itself, the third pillar of stability which i think is weakening. the biggest internal issue in the kingdom i think is the aged and confirmed leadership. this latest saudi state was declared in 1932 by abdullah al saud. and when he died in 1953, the crown has passed from one of his, first to his eldest son and then from brother to half-brother to half-brother. so ki
